The Little King is a short fiction film with a social content. It treats an important social issue – the suppressed anger, the repressed feelings and the complexes carried throughout life by someone whose childhood was far from ideal. Aris is a child who was sexually abused throughout his childhood. His introversion and shame never let him reveal it. And so he was obliged to grow up burying his anger deep inside his fear, without ever facing up to it, without giving it an outlet.
Director's Note
In writing The Little King screenplay I wanted to create segments that came as close to fantasy as possible while still remaining within a range that I could produce from a directorial standpoint. The story originated in my disgust at the sexual exploitation of children and developed into an exploration of repressed anger. I was tremendously fortunate in the cast and crew who put their confidence in me and who brought this film to life. This film was a child in its own way and I am grateful to all those who helped me create it.
